I was looking for a USB camera that I could use as a magnifier for assembly of surface mounted electronic components to a circuit board . There are lots of USB cameras out there for a wide range of prices. I decided to try this one as a feasibility test. I was somewhat concerned by a very negative review that I read here, but decided that it was worth a few dollars to find out for myself.
I plugged the camera into my Windows 7 laptop and the system installed the needed drivers. The camera works with the software that came with my computer. Installing the software on the CD was quick and simple. The software provides some increased functionality over the laptops very basic software.
The camera functions well, autofocusing from a few inches on out. With the 2 megapixel image and the zoom capability of the software, it works quite well as a high tech magnifier. The only thing I am going to add to it is a ring of LED's for illumination of the subject.

It might seem a bit extreme to say that this bit of hardware was a complete and utter failure, but trust me, I've got my reasons.

1. My CD drive wouldn't spin up with the driver disk in it. It would make whirring noises for about 15 seconds, then stop, without even bringing up a dialog box or anything. My drive has no problems with every other disk I own, including heavily-printed magazine companions and 15-year-old CD-Rs burned during the Clinton administration.

2. Since I couldn't use the driver CD itself, I got online to try to find the drivers. Because Gigaware is apparently just Radio Shack's house brand, they don't have their own independent site, meaning that I had to go through Radio Shack to find anything at all. However, even though the thing is sold in their stores, it seems to have been discontinued, as Radio Shack doesn't have it listed in the main support section.

3. Then I decided to just try plugging it in and seeing how that worked. Windows spent a good 5 minutes digging around for some generic USB camera drivers, which it finally found and installed. However, without the software to go with it (which was on the CD that wouldn't work in my computer) I had to use Photoshop to access the camera. Doing so brought up a window that automatically cropped off the bottom and right side of the image when I clicked the frame, meaning that I couldn't get at the buttons at the bottom. I found that if I didn't click anywhere but the buttons, I could access the settings and change some of the stuff around. The autofocus feature was broken, meaning that I had to focus manually, and some of the sliders in the settings dialog didn't do anything at all.

Continuously having issues with the auto focus. If I move just a little bit it spends 3-5 seconds zooming in and out with a fuzzy picture attempting to refocus.

Constantly loses focus. I'm guessing this is a "feature" of auto-focus. For certain its a bug.
